Diodes 公司 (纳斯达克股票代号：DIOD) 今日宣布已完成收购安森美在缅因州南波特兰市之晶圆制造厂 (SPFAB)。
正如同先前所宣布的，Diodes 将整合位于南波特兰市的制造设施和晶圆厂营运业务，包括将 SPFAB 的员工迁至 Diodes。在这项多年期晶圆供应协议中，安森美将这项生产活动转移到其他晶圆厂进行时，Diodes 将继续在 SPFAB 生产安森美的产品。
Diodes 公司的董事长、总裁暨执行长卢克修博士表示：「我们非常高兴顺利完成这项交易，这与我们在未来几年大幅提高收入和利润的策略目标一致。我想先欢迎 SPFAB 的员工加入 Diodes 的大家庭。厂内团队卓越的工程能力与技能，将能够支持我们达到预期的技术和营运绩效目标。SPFAB 替 Diodes 公司的模拟产品提供了额外的 200mm 晶圆厂产能，可以增加我们在汽车产业和工业终端市场的成长动能。这处位于美国的晶圆厂，连同我们目前在亚洲和欧洲所拥有的工厂，更进一步扩大了我们的全球生产规模，在如今供货吃紧的环境下，显著提升了 Diodes 的内部产能和竞争优势，也有助于推动我们日后的长期成长。在完成交易后，我们的目标是积极提升 SPFAB 新晶圆厂的制程和产能，以配合 Diodes 的策略发展计划。」
Diodes 预计利用该设施来验证 CMOS 和 BiCMOS 制程和进行生产，以支持多个模拟产品线，包括电源管理 IC、讯号链和标准产品，以及数个高效能分立产品系列。
